Cricket Wireless to Carry Pre-Paid BlackBerrys

Comments

Cricket Wireless is expected to carry BlackBerrys later this year, with some decent calling plans, but average data rates. There is no word on which device or price, but we do know the price isn’t to exceed $299. Cricket is a small, contract-free carrier with over 4 million users, and they it mostly covers metropolitan areas. Expect some of the following rates from Cricket:

  • $30/month unlimited calling
  • +$10/month unlimited text, MMS and voicemail
  • $50/month email and GPS services (unsure if the above is included)
  • $60/month for data in the form of “mobile video clips and 100 minutes of roaming”
